Diebold makes its leading monitoring solutions available to dealers

NORTH CANTON, Ohio – Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD), one of the world’s leading security integrators, is expanding its reach through the introduction of the Diebold Advanced Dealer Program.
Created to engage new distribution channels, the Diebold Advanced Dealer Program will enable leading, pre-certified security dealers to leverage Diebold’s best-in-class, advanced monitoring services. The program will expand Diebold’s North American delivery network at local and regional levels, while enabling select dealers to provide new services to their customers. Approved dealers will have the opportunity to offer advanced monitoring services without the need to invest in costly infrastructure or additional staff. Diebold Authorized Dealers can leverage Diebold’s most sophisticated monitoring solutions, including Site Sentry® Remote Video Monitoring, Site Sentry® Remote Video Storage, managed access control and energy management. They’ll also have access to Diebold’s DVR health check, weather detection notification, police permit management and award-winning alarm monitoring. These solutions will enable end users to enhance security, reduce workforce demands, increase efficiencies and deliver enterprise-wide return on investment.
“The Diebold Advanced Dealer Program is mutually beneficial, providing value to Diebold, dealers and end users,” said V. John Stroia, vice president, government and monitoring solutions, Diebold Security division. “It enables us to expand our market reach, while providing dealers with solutions they haven’t been able to offer. And end-users will benefit by gaining access to proven monitoring expertise, while maintaining the relationship with their existing security provider.” The Diebold Advanced Dealer Program targets high-end dealers with expertise in Internet Protocol (IP) solutions. Unlike other dealer programs in the security industry, participating dealers won’t be required to sell their accounts to Diebold to participate. And the program isn’t intended to make existing legacy programs obsolete. Monitoring solutions will be delivered through Diebold’s Monitoring Centers in Uniontown, Ohio, and Honolulu, Hawaii. Diebold monitoring centers are ULcertified, fully redundant, national alarm monitoring centers. Five-Diamond certified by the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), Diebold was recognized as the 2007 CSAA Central Station of the Year. Diebold was also named Frost & Sullivan’s 2009 North American Monitoring Provider of the Year.
Qualified dealers can apply for the Diebold Advanced Dealer Program through Diebold’s exclusive Online Dealer Center at www.diebold.com/dealer. The application process will open following the ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits, Sept. 21-24 in Anaheim, Calif.
“Diebold has been in the business of creating secure, efficient environments for 150 years,” said Bradley J. Stephenson, vice president, Diebold Security division. “Our vision for the Diebold Advanced Dealer Program is to be recognized as the highest-value provider of event monitoring services in the financial, retail, commercial and government markets. It’s just one way we plan to continue our security legacy during the next 150 years.”
